  • Sure it happens. I never made any of my due dates. Two went over and the other two were a week early. But there is still a chance you will make it. Some women stay at 2-3 centimeters for weeks. It will depend on how active you are and all that other stuff.

  • since your 80%efaced more likely not to make it... but your baby wont be in danger

  • My niece had a baby in dec. (her second) & was dilated to 4 cm for 3 weeks. She finally got induced right before her due date. She couldnt take the pain anymore...she was having no productive contractions for those 3 weeks as well.
